Valentine’s Day is coming up, which might be enough to set your heart a-flutter, but I’ve been looking at other ways of fluttering for this week’s travel theme. First up, a pretty little bird launching into flight in a New York park, its wings a fluttering blur.
Sticking with the wildlife theme, a most majestic flutterer, a giant yellow butterfly in Tikal National Park in Guatemala.
Kites fluttering in the skies above Seattle’s Kite Hill…
…and fluttering flags from three different countries marking the spot where their borders intersect.
I hope this week’s theme has you in a flutter to get started on your own interpretation. If you would like to join in (everyone’s welcome!) here’s what to do:
- Create your own post and title it Travel theme: Flutter
- Include a link to this page in your post so others can find it too
- Get your post in by next Thursday, as the new travel theme comes out on Friday

We are like butterflies who flutter for a day and think it’s forever. – Carl Sagan
There is nothing holier in this life of ours than the first consciousness of love, the first fluttering of its silken wings. – Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Haha, that little bird in the muddy puddle cracked me up, he looked like he was thoroughly enjoying himself. 🙂

Took some time to find it…To me it is birds and butterflies that first come to mind. Love that little bird especially!
What an amazing sight, such a lovely photo, Leya. xxx
Thank you – loving it even more as I know I will never return.
I love the challenge of photographing butterflies. This post fits your theme nicely, even though I’d already written it! Oh, and happy Valentine’s Day to you too!
Loved your post, that Cairns Birdwing is stunning, both male and female, I love the soft brown of the female against that pink flower. And Tommy’s face too, haha. Happy Valentine’s Day to you too. xxx
My take on the theme….https://travtrails.wordpress.com/2016/02/13/ailsas-travel-theme-flutter/
Such joyful photos, and I adore that Anais Nin quote. xxx
Ooh perfect, I can just hear that peacock rustling his tail feathers!
I love it! Great theme and that first photo is astounding. You make me want to actually join in on this blog hop, if only I wasn’t so resistant to joining things and stupidly, stubbornly defiant.
Haha, drat your stubborn defiance 😉 So that top bird photo is a secret favourite of mine, it was completely unplanned, I only spotted the little guy right before it took off so just did a quick point and shoot, but I absolutely love the movement in it, and the light in its eye.
